Gas Tank

For today's posting, a very short and sweet entry on the protection of the gas tank. I don't know what was considered correct for the car, but I'm sure the gas tanks originally came as unpainted steel, leading to their inevitable rusting. We took a few quick hours of measures to prevent this. It won't be concours, but it will sure look nice underneath the car, and even nicer in the years to come when the gas tank is protected from rust.

1. The gas tank is stripped down with a wire brush and cleaned/degreased very well. Rose begins to apply several coats of Miracle Paint. This is her stupid smile, not her serious smile :)

2. The gas tank is now encapsulated in a hard layer of Miracle Paint to be protected for years to come. And it looks great too.
